  • Mani L. Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory 607 Charles E. Young Dr., East, Los Angeles
  • Prof. Caram Flyer Exploring the Extremes of Excitonic Photophysics Abstract: We investigate the chemical physics that underpins "extreme" excitonic photophysics -- materials with infrared electronic absorption, long-range exciton delocalization/transport, unusually narrow linewidths, and quantum functionality. In this talk, I will describe two emerging themes in my group's effort; the design of materials with mesoscale excitonic properties, and…
